Just visiting here and reading this thread, interesting! I had a lot of Porsches in my life, 12 to be exact. Anything from. 356 to various 911 to a Cayenne and finally to a 986 Boxster and now a 2014 Boxster. To all of you who think a 991 is too "GT", you have a point, as a hardcore fanboy I still miss my 964 C2 built to RS specs, big time. I find the current Boxster the most fun to drive car by far and the best value as well. And I drove several 991s over time to compare.

Our '08 gets maybe 14 mpg around town and maybe 18 mpg on the highway at 75 mph. I guess the ethanol gas is to blame, total suckage! It is an "S" with bypass pipes, recent plugs and filters, regular maintenance.
Ok! 2 coil packs were somehow damaged, replaced, engine runs perfect again. I absolutely have no idea how this knocking sound has to do with the coil packs. However, all is good and a BIG thank you to our Porsche tech Larry who fixed the engine :)

AndyA6 replied to Rapewta's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Fantastic! Been there last year, so much fun and very cool cars and people.
Very common problem. T-reg bearings are more expensive. There is a company in Denver which does the repairs for approx. 400 in exchange.
True! Bolt not loose = certain damage to the rubber bushing on the chassis side!
